The MotoGP 2022 World Championship has begun heating up. With only a few races left on the calendar, the top two riders are only 18 points apart in the standings. Will Fabio Quartararo be able to maintain his lead, or can Francesco Bagnaia bounce back from his fifth crash of the season to take his first-ever world title? Let’s try to find that out so you don’t miss your chance to bet against the MotoGP Odds.
MotoGP Betting Analysis for the 2022 Thailand Grand Prix Race
Can Fabio Quartararo hold onto his lead?
Fabio Quartararo has had a spectacular 2022 season so far. He currently sits 18 points ahead of his title rival Francesco Bagnaia after an exciting race in Japan last weekend. Quartararo held on to his starting position and earned a few points, while Bagnaia spun out on every last lap of the race and lost any points he might have earned.
Despite Quartararo’s impressive season, things have slowed down recently for the Frenchman. He has not won a race in almost two months and has only finished on the podium once in his last five races. Quartararo will need to channel some of his early season self to maintain his lead in the championship.
Francesco Bagnaia Roaring Back
For a long while this season it appeared nobody had a shot at beating Fabio Quartararo. Then, about 8 races into the year, Francesco Bagnaia started putting in work. He began getting podium after podium, win after win, and has come back from a major deficit in the standings. Before last week’s race, Bagnaia was only 8 points behind Quartararo.
Now Bagnaia has an 18-point lead to make up after a tough last lap in Japan. As the MotoGP championship returns to Thailand, Bagnaia will be hoping to improve on his qualifying position and hopefully get off to a good start.
MotoGP Thailand Grand Prix Betting Odds & Lines
The odds for the MotoGP world championship have tightened up significantly over the past couple of weeks. Once a -400 favorite, Fabio Quartararo now sits only at -150 to win the title. Francesco Bagnaia is close behind as a +125 underdog, while Aleix Espargaro is far behind at +1100.
It feels like, at this point, it will certainly be either Quartararo or Bagnaia who takes home the MotoGP world championship this year. Barring a collapse from those two and multiple wins from Espargaro, it should be one of the two (Bagnaia or Quartararo) to win the championship. These are the only two riders with realistic value left on them in the 2022 MotoGP world championship.
Free Betting Pick
My pick for this race is Fabio Quartararo. The French rider has been consistent, dominant, and, most importantly smart. Fabio doesn’t have to challenge himself too much; he just needs to remain ahead of Bagnaia each week. I believe Quartararo is the smarter and more skilled driver, and I believe he will be able to win the Championship.
